Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

distances and dynamics:

The hyaenodon is about 80 yds from Kadarin and closing, not 50, sorry...reason being, it picked up the scent a while ago, and was "meandering" its way in a side-ways sort of fashion (like a lot of predators who pretend they have no interest, just before they pounce).

Ogres (the 4 armed and armored ones + leader) are about 240 yards from closest AuR'er (Vorodon).

Vorodon, in turn, is about 60 yds from Kadarin and Mouse's position, so not far at all.

Human soldiers are nearing faster than the 5 ogres. Their camp was closer. They are also heading toward Vorodon (generally speaking), as they spotted him once he yelled.

Kyrian, Adan, and the carpeted-lord Waltor Reymar are not yet in site of the ogres and humans (due to hill angles and such) but will be momentarily.

d**n, i wish i had a map for this!! :)

Basically, in moments (minute or so) either some fast-talking or some bloody fighting, will commence for all.

Well, with dog, ogres and soldiers, it's pretty busy up there. Also: Kyrian, armor, progress?

Count the armor as AC 3 instead of AC 1 for this engagement, then.

Also: Bull's Strength has a duration in hours in this edition?
[roll 1d4+1] for the bonus.

Hey SnO, I need the name of one of the kin slain by Adan. Dujek can play insane... :D

Haha, I lost the family tree. ;( Give me a bit to look it up.

Close enough, and a short line of succession for the duchy just to give Muro it to work with:
Sira (Great-Grandmother)
Rudi (Grandfather)
Nial (Father) -- Alair (Mother)
  • Rhys (son)
  • Thea (daughter)
  • Aron (son)
  • Lyle, the Serpent (son)
  • Adan (son)
  • Gwyn (daughter)
Aron got killed by Adan, tricked by Lyle, Nial and (I presume) Alair by Lyle's handiwork. Adan and Gwyn are fraternal twins. 
It would not take very much of a gather information check to know that there's a legendary holy sword at the capital that is involved in annointing the Duke (a currently empty position, thus a matter of general discussion ) in some fashion, and that all of the Duke's family is expected to be an able swordsman, even and especially the women.

furthermore, (this feels like GoT for some reason lol) Gwyn is currently being held captive at the castle of the Von Hellen Duke, Lokknar.

Lyle is said to be roaming the battle-lands somewhere, mad asa hatter, cackling, drooling and muttering, and spurring on the mysterious glass-jar cultists with their odious vials of demo-goo. He has betrayed his own kin in The Feud, and is now looking to unleash hell upon the Hellschwerts, and anyone else for that matter, in general.

The Von Hellens (having no doubt entered into bizarre pacts with denizens of Tarterus) have gone mad, and assault and siege the castles of the Hellschwerts. The latter are slowly losing, and the former, ever-emboldened by their demonic allies, edge closer to victory.

The blade of which Adan speaks, lies in the Hellschwert's main castle and familial domain. This mighty keep is also currently besieged by Von Hellen's lords.

Duh. I just hacked up one of his men-at-arms and smacked his commander >.< But, if it ever comes to it, I'll show Lokknar Theoderich von Hellen my character sheet and point to my WIS stat.

So I guess my plan to start giggling and telling the villagers that Dujek was hired by Aron to avenge his death isn't going to happen now.  I need to get internet once I fix my motorcycle.

Oops, forgot. Kyrian found this letter in Lord Reymar's tent.

Lord Reymar,
I pray the raven finds you well. I write news of the siege as promised. Odilo Brunn has tired of waiting and is building his catapults. Six engines in all, monstrous specimens, able to hurl hill-sized boulders, by the looks of them. Another raven will soon arrive; Odilo Brunn sends you word himself. He bids the ogres to return to Ashe Keep, and requests you to remain with the dam. He seeks to reap all the glory. Ashe Keep should fall within a fortnight.
